Thirsty Thursday: Hope’s Watermelon & Mint Infused Water

Happy Thirsty Thursday!
What is more satiating than a refreshing, fresh, fruit-infused water on a hot summer day?Not much.

Hope's Watermelon & Mint-Infused Water

That’s why I’m delighted that my sweet and creative good friend and neighbor, Hope, is sharing her Watermelon Mint-infused water today on BeautyFrosting.
She made a gallon of this healthy and refreshing thirst quencher this past Saturday for her sweet friend, Ruby’s, baby shower.

Thirsty Thursday: White Wine recommendation (ooh-la-la!)

Espiral Vinho Verde $3.99 (!!)

I am a red wine lover. It’s my spirited beverage of choice (just see the pic of me in the bathtub in my gallery). But sometimes in the lovely city of Los Angeles, it gets hot -especially with a lack of air conditioning – and chilled, white wine is the only way to quench a parched palate.

So, imagine my delight when I found a CHEEEEAP white wine that I loved!
That is the case with the $3.99 bottle of Espiral Vinho Verde that my sweet neighbor-friends brought me for my Easter dinner. Its crisp, light, refreshing and slightly effervescent taste was just what the 80-degree weather wanted.

And then that tart green apple bite with a drizzle of honey? Deeeeelish!!

It reminds me of a tame, less sweet Green Apple Jolly Rancher. And, y’all, that’s a good thing.

I imagine it would pair delightfully with summer tapas such as ceviche, vermont white cheddar, goat cheese and/or red bean dip. But I’m not a wine expert.

I just know what I like.

And, honey, I like this. I like the taste and I looooove the price!

Head on over to your nearest Trader Joe’s and grab a bottle for your next dinner party!
